Baker Goodchild highlights significant cost savings for its International Mailings over Royal Mail

Thursday, February 20, 2014

Press release from the issuing company

Birmingham-based direct mail fulfilment and print management services provider, Baker Goodchild, has highlighted that its clients could save as much as between 30%-50% on average, by sending their international mail through Baker Goodchild, rather than using Royal Mail’s services.

Last year alone, Baker Goodchild mailed some 5million items internationally on behalf of its clients, with mailings going to every country worldwide.

As one example of savings that can be achieved by its clients, Baker Goodchild currently provides international mailing services for a large education provider, who specialise in organising sizeable events and campaigns in locations all over the world.

Baker Goodchild currently provides print, fulfilment and postage services for this client for some 60,000 mailings every three months, which are then sent via their international mail services to Africa.

As a result of using Baker Goodchild as opposed to Royal Mail, Baker Goodchild charges the client just £0.27 to post each item, in comparison to the £1.00 per item the client would have been charged had they used Royal Mail, providing the client with a staggering 73% saving in costs by using Baker Goodchild’s mailing services.

Being an independent provider of bulk mail fulfilment and postal services, Baker Goodchild has invested in specialist bespoke mailing solutions and software, which enable them to identify the most cost effective way of sending mail internationally, providing attractive discounted rates and cost-effective savings at a time when cost, and secure delivery, are paramount.
Commenting on how Baker Goodchild are able to provide such a cost effective and efficient service, Baker Goodchild’s International Mailing Specialist and Account Director, Gareth Stringer, stated, “By forming relationships with the world's leading postal operators, we are able to analyse each mailing on a "job by job" basis to identify the most cost effective route to delivery without compromising on speed. It is no longer a case of sending every item individually, in many instances a bulk shipment to individual countries for "direct entry" into their domestic postal system can offer huge cost benefits.”

In order to obtain the best optimal price for an international mailing, Baker Goodchild uses a wide variety of reputable, quality, postal service providers for an international mailing, who, by using the latest postal sortation and software systems, can sort the mail out to different parts of the world to provide a far more cost effective service.

This applies to all postal formats, such as letters, flat packs, packets and parcels, and can be any number from just 500 to 5million items.

In addition, Baker Goodchild also employs International Mailing and Data Specialists, who have extensive knowledge of the international postal tariffs and route planning for the sending of international mailings.

All mailings can be fully tracked by clients, enabling them to see exactly where there despatches are at any time. Together with the reduced costs, there is no compromise on delivery times, so clients can rest assured that their mailings will arrive on time, as, and when, requested.
Based in the heart of Birmingham, close to the city centre, Baker Goodchild is a privately-owned company with over 19 years extensive experience in providing print, mail and postage solutions, throughout the UK and Internationally.
